Save the date! The Pan-European IR conference, 23 and 24 September, in Brussels
The next Pan-European IR conference will be held in Brussels on 23 and 24 September and will bring together delegates from the IR associations of the Netherlands (NEVIR), France (CLIFF), Belgium (BIRA) and Portugal (FIR), as well as from Germany, Switzerland and other European countries.
The 2014 conference, organised by these four associations, as well as Euronext and Tradinfo, will be the largest event ever for the European IR community helping you to extend your knowledge of current topics and leading IR practices. In addition, there will be ample opportunities to exchange and share experiences with peers and industry experts and to enhance your career through collaborative learning, leading edge content, and unparalleled networking opportunities.
The success of the Pan-European IR conference is due to the program being set up by IROs for IROs. The theme of the conference and the topics for each of the sessions will therefore be proposed by the IR associations themselves.
The conference will kick off with an exclusive dinner event in the Palais de la Bourse, which will include an entertaining keynote address delivered by a well establised speaker. In addition, during the evening we will celebrate together with Thomson Reuters Extel the annoucement of the winners of the 2014 IR awards for Belgium, France and Portugal.
The following day we will start with the Opening Bell Ceremony by the IR Presidents, followed by three extensive and interactive parallel sessions, with a focus on sharing experiences through ‘best practice’ or ‘case study’ presentations. The networking lunch will be organised as an introduction to the sector approach in the afternoon sessions. Each of the standing tables will indicate a sector, so that the IROs have the opportunity to meet their counterparts in an informal setting.
In the afternoon, there will be around six parallel sector breakout sessions, specifically designed around the topical issues in specific industries. This set-up guarantees a customized approach tailored to the interest of the IROs. In addition, there will be also a parallel generic breakout session, in case an IRO does not want to join one the sector sessions. The event will end with drinks.
The website ‘Pan-European IR Conference’ will be updated in a few weeks. Registration will start in March at http://www.european-ir-conference.com.
We look forward to welcoming you!
